LONDON (Alliance News) - Origo Partners PLC Monday said that Executive Chairman Wang Chao Yong, Chief Executive Chris Rynning, and Non-Executive Directors Christopher Jemmett and Tom Prestulen have agreed to step down as directors in the wake of a review aimed at its governance arrangements.

The remaining directors of the private equity investor will be Non-Executive Chairman Shonaid Jemmett-Page, Non-Executive Directors Lionel de Saint-Exupery, and Chief Financial Officer Niklas Ponnert, who is also a director of Origo Advisors Ltd.

Chris Rynning remains a director of Origo Advisors Ltd, which provides management services to the company.

"The revised board structure now reflects Origo's mandate as an investment company in realisation mode. We would like to thank the outgoing directors for their significant contribution to the company over the years," Jemmett-Page said in a statement.

In addition, the company said it is issuing about 2.0 million new shares at an effective price of 5.875 pence per share.
